Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve

2480 B KS Hwy 177

Tallgrass prairie once covered 170 million acres of North America. Within a generation the vast majority was developed and plowed under. Today less than 4% remains, mostly here in the Kansas Flint Hills. The preserve protects a nationally significant remnant of the once vast tallgrass prairie and its cultural resources. Here the tallgrass prairie takes its last stand.

Awesome place, great scenery to be seen on the trails. If you can get here at sunset, they are spectacular. The visitor center has great interactive displays and the ranch house gives a glimpse back in time to what it was like to live in the Flint Hills in the late 1800's.

This preserve really helps the visitor take a step back in time to experience the sites and sounds of the prairie. Photos don't provide the feel of the open expanses and never ending sky. We enjoyed our time at the preserve, and came home with a great story about the "ambassador" buffalo.

A beautiful park with plenty of walking paths and a nice visitor center. We had one of our party suffering from early signs of heat stroke and the staff were incredible. They helped us with the assistance we needed in the scary time and were so friendly. Highly recommend - make sure you bring a camera and plenty of water.

Very comprehensive tour. More than you would think about the prairie. Nicely working to renovate the structures on the grounds.

Very nice! Long hike through the short prairie grass (short this time of year). Make sure you have the essentials - sunscreen, water, hat, snacks. Clean, well-kept facilities. Sweeping views of the gorgeous plains. Worth the drive.
